Seed Sovereignty, Food Security: Women in the Vanguard
Vandana Shiva (ed.)

This unique, international offering on an issue of critical importance today, demonstrates how women as activists, scientists and scholars are at the forefront of shaping new scientific and economic paradigms to reclaim seed sovereignty and food security across the world. Women in the North and South are leading movements to change both practice and paradigm: how we grow and transform our food. As seed keepers and food producers, as mothers and consumers, they are engaged in renewing a food system that is better aligned with the ecological processes of the earth’s renewal, the laws of human rights and social justice and the means through which our bodies stay well and healthy.

Reviews
Write a review.
I strongly recommend Seed Sovereignty, Food Security to a wide group of readers, especially to those who have not taken the threat to our food supply seriously. This is a important statement of why we all should care about the future of agriculture.
